Lately my PC keeps getting segmentation fault, everywhere, on almost every apps (thunderbird, firefox, chromium, google-chrome, wine, byobu)

here's the last few output of dmesg:

And first few second during execution of firefox:

Segmentation fault

And many more.. Currently I'm using Manjaro Linux:

Linux archpc 3.14.13-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jul 18 09:02:40 UTC 2014 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Previously I'm using latest ArchLinux, it also happened..

I'm seriously don't know what to do.. It's only happened since past 3 weeks, before that, Chrome and Chromium only crash "Aw snap" once in a while.

Here's the list of installed program in my computer: http://pastie.org/9433158

Could anyone help me to find the causation of this problem?

  • kindly edit, link you mentioned is incomplete it is home page of pastie.org. – Tejas Jul 31 '14 at 4:16
  • ah sorry, it's pastie.org/9433158 – Kokizzu Jul 31 '14 at 5:01

Sounds like a hardware fault. Segfaults across the whole system can be caused by bad sectors on the disk or bad memory.

Run a memory test and see if there's some faulty memory that is causing your issue.

After that if the memory test does not find an issue, I would run a badblocks scan on your hard drive.

  • ok, i will run fsck -vccky /dev/sdX1 on all partition – Kokizzu Jul 31 '14 at 4:33
  • @Kokizzu I would do the memory test first. – Lawrence Jul 31 '14 at 4:37
  • yes, it's RAM problem, corruption occurs on 46xx MB and 13xxxMB T__T what should I do? – Kokizzu Jul 31 '14 at 5:00
  • 2
    Time for new RAM ! – Lawrence Jul 31 '14 at 5:05
  • could you follow up the next question unix.stackexchange.com/q/147587/27996 thank you ^^ – Kokizzu Jul 31 '14 at 5:12
